Allow streamers to remove default tags from games
If twitch can't be bothered to get the default tags for games correct, which is obviously going to happen with any organization of this size working at this speed, then at least allow me to disconnect tags that don't describe what I'm doing. IE when I'm playing X-Plane 11, a flight simulator, why am I getting "Stealth" "RTS" and "Strategy"? Let -me- manage my tags, because you're bad at it. I appreciate the suggestions I get, but if you've got default tags that suck, I should be able to remove them. This should always have been a capability we should have had. For instance what if I'm playing an unofficial multiplayer mod to a popular single player game? Default tags are going to include single-player, but I'm definitely NOT playing single player. I should be able to remove that tag. Instead the best I can do is add multiplayer so I have both the single-player and multiplayer tags which makes no sense and looks like I'm trying to scam views.
End of the day I should be able to edit my tags to show -exactly- what I want to show. Otherwise I spend more time explaining why I'm in certain tags because twitch got drunk and giggled with its friends about how fun it would be to add "stealth" to a flight sim, than I am finding people who actually want to see what I'm broadcasting.
Every time I view Streams for any game, the Automatic Tags are not of my choosing and wrong for me .... many of them drastically so. Please let us surf to a game and choose or edit our own tags.
Since we can only use 5 tags, I hate how, when I play COD, Twitch does not let me remove the "Action" tag. I think "FPS" and "Shooter" are sufficient!!!
Im having this problem with language tags. whenever i change my language on stream the tag of the previous setting will stay. WHY?????? its the most ridiculous **** ever! if i change the language on my stream i want the tag to be according to that language and not the previous one.
I agree with absolute freedom in tag usage. People should be able to choose the tags they want to use. This freedom should not be taken away in the name of convenience for others.
Personally, I do not want tags applied to any of my streams but I am not given the option to remove any automatically applied. I do not wish to use the tag system but am not given the option to opt out of it. Were there to be an option to simply remove tags automatically applied it would be very much appreciated, as I do not want to use tags for any of my streams.
Some of the automatic tags don't apply. For example, I have an educational poker channel that is family-friendly and I work for POKER POWHER, an organization dedicated to teaching women the game for free. It doesn't make sense that my channel is labeled "gambling game" since gambling is not the focus. Strategy and mindset is. Having a big ugly "gambling" tag on my channel is not helping me with advertisers, and the "gambling" viewers looking for slot machines are not the types of viewers looking for my channel.
PLEASEEEE i did my first ever real stream last night on minecraft and i had tags like mmo and survival in when i was just playing on a creative modded mc server - i couldnt tag it accurately TwT so PLEASE allow us to remove default tags if we want, they can still be set by default n all but just allow us to remove them pelase

I'd like the ability to turn off the auto added tags on my game. I'm playing Fortnite, like many streamers, but I'm playing pve and have no way of removing the "Battle Royale" tag.
